Chender: More needed from telecoms following storms

Halifax -- NDP Business spokesperson Claudia Chender made the following statement in response to continuing issues with cell and internet service due to Hurricane Dorian:

“In 2019, internet and cell phone services are an essential service.
People should be able to expect that in the event of outages, the companies that provide these services will deliver detailed and timely reports on what the impacts are and what restoration work is underway.
The Liberal government should require big telecommunications companies to provide the public with the same level of information being provided about power outages in the province.”
